Solved Afraid I might be hacked

Post by Zexion on September 4th 2011, 6:25 pm

There is one banned member on my forum (if you're wondering, it's Zoroark's Nightmare zoroarksnightmare.forumotion.com) who's been causing trouble and drama for a long time. (Game Maker)

Anyway, we banned him, and now he's on a website called Serebii, and in his profile, it says:
"Hey ZN, I made a forum site that plans on destroying yours! XDDDDD"
He's been talking about hacking our forum and getting revenge for a very long time now. Recently, one of our Head Administrators has resigned and requested permanent ban because he was reconsidering Game Maker's ban, and he said he may have had hands in the whole operation. This concerns the now duo of head administrators at ZN (Myself and a user named Pain), and recently, a strange member has joined the website. All of this is very disturbing.

If anyone can give me advice on either protecting or duplicating my forum for its safety, PLEASE SHARE IT NOW.

I'm begging for help, if there's any way I can protect the forum against this or duplicate it..

Hi, I'm not sure where to begin or how to advise you. If your forum hasn't been hacked, then why are you worrying? Please note that your forums on Forumotion are very safe and your account can only be compromised if you do something stupid such as give away your password.

This has been going on for a VERY long time though. And this guy's buddies aren't amateur. They're full blown hackers, and they've gone into other people's computers and done crap so bad that they've had to buy new ones.

I just want to know if there's a way I can duplicate Zoroark's Nightmare (copy it) so it stays safe

There's no way to duplicate your forum, but backups are made frequently. If your forum is ever in trouble, you are able to restore your forum.

Okay, thanks for letting me know. Is there a way I could restore it? (I didn't know of this before)
